Decent enough double ipa....pours amber with nice frothy head...great lacing.....nose is sweet citrus and light hops....taste is a little lacking in the citrus and hops...alcohol taste hits at finish....good but not great.

Nothing crazy here. Very sweet hoppy beer. Seems a little bit to sweet for me, however it does drink smooth. Nothing out of the ordinary but not sub par.

sawbuck (248) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2014
Average aroma of floral hops...nothing special. Nice deep orange hue with a very thick tan head with some staying power. Bitter hops with some malty sweetness peaking though initially. Finishes bitter with some alcohol burn...but fairly smooth. Fairly muted....not as complex as anticipated.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle: Pours cloudy amber with a short beige head. Tangerine, grapefruit and mango aroma. Flavour is citric, tropical/floral hops...caramel malt. Piney bittering. Pretty well balanced and easy drinking.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2014
12oz bottle from Wine Academy. Poured a murky thicker honey amber body with a smaller tight foamy eggshell head. Aroma of lightly rotting citrus, dough, wet bread, bad oranges. Body is solid, big and full mouthfeel, average to stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is slightly lower than the aroma, notes of citrus rind, older "limons", bad dough, wet grains, rotting hop cones. Meh....was expecting to love this but itís just so so.

Hop_Hedonist (178) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
A massively bodied ale - great hoppy aroma - dense malty palate but enough hops to raise this ale into complex territory - thick on the tongue - very malt after-taste, too malty for me! Nice bitterness.

MadIndian (2306) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
On draft at PJís. Nice notes of floral hop and pine. Nice dry hop finish. Nothing I havenít seen before, but a decent IPA.

jmikolich (1399) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome St Paul, solidly hopped with galaxy makes it a winner for me, quick and easy to drink with a decent 8% punch. Job well done Clown Shoes.

Ferris (2026) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle - sweet and grape fruity, little earthy. Cloudy orange with a thin beige. Nicely hopped and a balanced sweetness. East coast style and decent.
